Report blames accidental discharge on trigger being caught in clothing
After presenting the circumstances to the grand jury last week, District Attorney Alison Sosebee stated in a memo this week that there will be no charges, nor further investigation into the accidental discharge of the sheriff’s backup firearm during a Shop-with-a-Cop event December 17th at the Jasper Walmart.
